The best investment you will ever make.

Getting your head around university fees and funding may seem a stressful part of applying, but we are here to help you through it one step at a time. 

Your tuition fees enable us to give you first-class teaching, modern facilities, access to societies and events, resources in our libraries and online, guidance and support, and not forgetting a truly memorable student experience. Get to grips with tuition fees, government loans and repayments, and scholarships and bursaries on offer to you.

Fee statuses

Our admissions team will assess your fee status when you apply to Essex. If you are successful in gaining an offer, your fee status will be confirmed in your offer letter. Visit our fee status page for more information.

Scholarships and other funding

We have a number of financial packages to support students, including those from lower income households. Additional support for UK students includes bursaries for care leavers, students with refugee status, and students from lower income households studying on a year abroad, industrial or voluntary placement. Use our Scholarship Finder to search for funding opportunities.

We may also have country-specific funding opportunities.
